While in Idaho Lynn took me to Hucklebery Patches, in McCall Idaho. She belongs to a wool group that meets there once a month. When we arrived they were just finishing up the monthly Thimbleberries group, so we caught the tail end of show and tell. They were also serving lunch to the ladies in the group and invited us to join them, delicious soup and bread. We spent hours browsing. I came home with a new project and a few things to add to my stash. My friend Lynn does a lot of hand work, it would be safe to say her nitch is hand work and wool. She also incorperates that into her quilting. I can't believe I am writing this and have no pictures of her work, grrr... Anyhow, she shared some of her patterns with me and generously offered up her stash so I could play along. I came home with a few diddy's of my own. She also showed me how to make a Philly's toothbrush rug (work in progress). I had a very relaxing week , got to spend time with some of my favorite people, indulge in my favorite things...including their premium prime rib. YUM!!!
My first attempt at a wool and felt project. I will be back, but I think my heart is in quilting, but what a way to inhance!
